Scouting Report
Assets: Has ideal size for a professional running back. Also boasts incredible quickness and very nimble feet. Is an everydown back with good hands and the ability to be a very productive receiver out of the backfield. Can be a true power back and short-yardage asset too, and he's also good at picking up the blitz as a blocker.
Flaws: Needs to improve his ball security in order to maximize playing time (and production) at the National Football League level, since fumbles have been an issue so far. Knee injuries are already a concern, too. Needs to show more consistency overall.
Career Potential: All-round stellar featured running back.
